Now that we are too old to trick-or-treat on Halloween we must come up with new creative ways to celebrate the spooky holiday.
Here are three Halloween events that will take place in the John W. Hart Building on campus on Oct. 31.
Admission for access to all three events is $5 with your BYU-Idaho student ID card and $7 without it. All events are from 7-11 p.m.
If you love to dance to the current top hits, show up to the Halloween Dance in the Hart Main Gym in your scariest costume. Make sure not to cover your entire face with face paint or wear a full face mask or you won’t be granted entry, according to the Student Activities webpage.
The River of Styx
Prepare to be frightened if you choose to go canoeing in the River of Styx. This attraction is a haunted canoe race from one side of the Hart pool to the other.
“It was really fun to have such a hands-on Halloween experience instead of just walking through a haunted house, said Taylor McCombs, a senior studying elementary education who has participated in the activity in past years. “Rowing your own canoe through the fog was super scary.”
Amanda Mangum, a senior studying elementary education, said it was terrifying when swimmers lurking beneath the water in the pool lunged at her and her friend in the canoe.
The third event held on Halloween is called the Fandomonium. This event is a combination of Comic-con and Anime-con, according to the Student Activities webpage.
Don’t be fooled by the description. While there will be fan art displayed in a gallery, there will be something there for everyone, including a costume contest, games and a photo booth, according to the Student Activities webpage.
Don’t sit around in your apartment waiting for trick-or-treaters that will never arrive this holiday. Take advantage of Halloween in the Hart Building and start a new tradition with your friends.
